Modify your own source code with this piece of Python black magic
Modify your own source code with this piece of Python black magic.
When a piece of code calls replace_me(value), that line will be replaced with the given value. If you want to insert a comment and keep the line that inserted it, use insert_comment(value).
ATTENTION: Calling these functions will modify your source code. Keep backups.
from replace_me import replace_me, insert_comment # If you run this program, this source code will change. # These two lines will become the same: # Hello World replace_me("Hello World", as_comment=True) # Code generation. Creates a hard coded list of 100 numbers. replace_me('numbers = ' + str(list(range(100)))) import random # The next comment will be replaced with a random number. insert_comment(random.randint(1, 10)) # ?? # Pseudo-quine, replaces the line with itself. quine = 'replace_me(quine)' replace_me(quine)
